Regional Landing Pad FAQs

What support will the Sydney Startup Hub provide to regional startups and hubs?

Supporting the NSW regional startup community is a priority for NSW Treasury, with regional entrepreneurs essential to jobs growth in their local communities.

The Sydney Startup Hub will support activity in regional NSW by enabling regional startups to more easily access networks, potential customers and investment. It will provide a gateway for regional entrepreneurs to tap into the broader metropolitan startup community and vice versa.
